Shoreline August 27 - Beautiful Moon
I was at this show and as others noticed, it was low energy. Phil contributed a moving Broken Arrow which was nice. Jerry spent alot of time low on the frets. But you have to remember shows became less about a complete all night rave up and 1 or 2 songs. Days between is beautiful in any show. So many roads. The traditional material starts to not have that deep feeling. The band and jerry is tired.
That night though the sky over the penisula was crystal clear with a bright moon over the bay. It was chilly in the santa cruz mountains over the pass headed to the coast and surfing.
So personally this show was great (not the best of the 30 so so I saw) and I enjoyed it, and yes, even the Phil Songs. But I am a fan of phil - he actually gave me a ride the Gathering of the Vibes in Bridgeport!

Lazy River..anything but lazy !?
I only went to 1 GD show, fortunately I caught them my sophmore year in high school in New Orleans '88. Also 1 JGB show in Hampton '92or93. Tried to mail order tickets for the ChapelHill'94shows but w/out sucess.A guy in the nosebleed section at that N.O.show kept heckling me(but in a friendly way of course)about asking me to buy one of his homeade TieDyes. Wow, I was converted right then and there. Shortly after , picking Shrooms ensued and unlimited Perceptions were explored. Gosh , undescribable attention to the songs St.Stephen > The Eleven from Monterrey '69 ( which I picked up at one of vendors in the French Market,RockNRoll Collectibles Music Store was selling bootlegs for the public at the time ).
Anyway, this version of LazyRiverRoad is flawless with regard to passion in Jerry's voice and mixing of the bands' acoustic percussion accompaniment. For years, I was just interested in taping the long jam pleasers like Scarlet, Franklins, Eyes, etc. It's hard to believe that after all these years, I'm finally discovering the shorter ballad-like compositions that one can just sit and contemplate on their brilliance, rather than always dancing into oblivion. "Lazy" is one of those songs that puts me on a golden road instantly.
Burners, check this one out, I think you will agree. As far as the rest of the show goes, i'm just now starting to sample the other songs. Man this website is unreal...I keep telling myself when I think of Archive.Org that Life Is Good. dave p. in New Orleans, Come to JazzFest People

Johnny B. Goode
Not a bad show. Solid throughout with the only exception that Jerry's voice is playing up a bit. A nice Wave To The Wind - the first time I have heard Jerry being able to apprehend all the chord changes in this song. Playing In The Band almost disintegrates, sounding like they are going to go into Drums before UJB. Weir even briefly starts playing the chords for Uncle John's Band AFTER Drums - maybe he forgot they already played it :-). Sound wise, there is a little weirdness in the high frequencies - almost sounding like tape wobble, but this is hardly noticable. All in all a good show, considering that (rumor has it) both Mountain Girl and Deborah Coons were backstage at this show and there were some not-so-great vibes flying around in the Garcia camp. Perhaps Bill Walton's presence cheered him up! Worth a listen.
